In a press release Friday, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley said the party is “building an all-star team of experienced leaders to ensure that we organize and mobilize voters in every corner of the state.”
Buckley added that with Price, along with other senior leaders, “we are building a strong grassroots-focused party that will effectively support local Democratic committees, help Democrats win during this fall’s municipal elections, and elect Democrats up and down the ballot in 2022.”
The New Hampshire Democratic Party said in its Friday news release that Price was unanimously selected by a search committee and confirmed by the party’s executive committee for the job. Price will succeed Ryan Mahoney, who had been serving temporarily in the role since April and was named the senior adviser for state races on Friday.
Price will work closely with Buckley to “build and expand the grassroots, create a successful election strategy, serve as chief of staff and the chief financial officer, and run the day to day operations of the state party,” the party said.
The party noted that that Price had “worked closely” with its leaders for many years on “a variety of issues.”
